5:22 pm
his shocking victory over the ruling coalition in may. one thousand three next week is the world's oldest head of states he opposed the political forces he was once a part of the united. nation or. malaysia since its independence from britain in one nine hundred fifty seven. malaysia is a diverse nation with millions of muslims hindus buddhists living side by side a contrasting place where the old and new come together. but many malaysians have been angry in recent years over governments corruption and the rising cost of living prime minister mahathir has accused his predecessor najib result of steven conduits of millions of dollars and embezzling public funds. this week travels to the malaysian capital to sit down with the man fighting against corruption and for a more united malaysia prime minister mahathir mohamad talks to al-jazeera.
5:23 pm
thank you very much for talking to al jazeera you welcome your stepped aside as per minute. three thousand and three after serving for more than three decades in the top job here in malaysia but you never really left politics you are still very much a dominant figure within the ruling united malays national organization or menorahs it's known locally and it's actually been the monopoly holder of government since malaysia gained independence in two thousand and sixteen though you resigned from when you set up your own party announcing that you would contest the next elections which you eventually ended up winning surprisingly what is it that made you decide to run again for office at the age of ninety two. when they stepped down in two thousand and three i had no intention of being in politics till but after i stepped down then the new new leader takes over. a
5:24 pm
lot of people came to see me asking me to do something because they were not satisfied with the leadership of the successes my successes. i responded to their the lead tried to advise right. but even with the fifth prime minister i had to resign from the by the and came in to have fim. sat down and give. that to. eventually that the scene. took over but again. people were not happy because of a lot of scandals and involving him a lot of money was lost so again people came to see me as he me please do something well the big news that interested people internationally about malaysia has unfortunately been the issue of corruption in the case of the malaysian investment
5:25 pm
fund the one of the being in the hundreds of millions of dollars that have gone missing the chief culprits in this were the most prominent corporate. in this is a former prime minister najib razak now he appeared in court on wednesday and is now being charged what evidence is there that he stole money i mean why should people believe that he's guilty and it's not just an attempt by you or your allies to get rid of your political opponents. should that the prosecutor the attorney general has good enough evidence to decide to go to the cause i am not involved in the investigation by generally. and one of the reasons why the people did in one night to go on and he was defeated in the last election because of the scandals involving huge sums of money. which he was involved in and of course the law must see its costs and e.g.
5:26 pm
fines the navy does. exit. and the takes the decision so this is there's a complete separation here between your role in terms of politics and the in the way in which the legal process is taking place well when they came back one of or promises was that we will on the separation of powers be thinned aig. execs and the judiciary so i cannot interfere. with what he wants to do for promising to chip claim that the money that was in his accounts we're talking about six hundred eighty one million dollars was a gift from saudi arabia to help in his election campaign now either he's telling the truth and saudi arabia has effectively been interfering in malaysian politics by funding somebody is campaign or he's lying in the money was stolen but he's using saudi arabia to try and cover his tracks would also mean that saudi arabia is
5:27 pm
interfering in malaysian politics or domestic affairs when last i'm so money move. there will be a quote. they called in the bank to be issued his taxes being me when they deeply say it was given to him as a gift. that money he. said . to be taken as the truth he must provide. documentary evidence legler letters from the bank and also we want to ne very generous man we just get the money to give so much money but my point here is that is there is aside from the corruption there is a more dangerous issue which is foreign interference in malaysian politics if we are to say that the money did come from a saudi royal who gave it to him for his election campaign then saudi arabia is
5:28 pm
funding your political parties which is something that i'm not sure malaysians would be happy about of a foreign country dictating who becomes prime minister and if he's not telling the truth then also saudi arabia is interfering because they're allowing him to use their name to cover up the trucks often puzzlement we're disappointed in that. as not denying that the money was given by a saudi. at one time he claims one but person and then he leaves so deal and all that but he has no proof of these so we can accuse saudi arabia unless of course there is proof that is in fake try to interfere in politics this isn't the first major corruption case to plague our government in malaysia in fact when you were prime minister the first time around there were kids asians at the time of widespread corruption among some officials but your critics would say that instead of you purposely investigating that you
5:29 pm
decided to suck the man who claimed to be fighting gets who was at the time your right hand man deputy prime minister on or ibrahim and. behind bars do you still stand by what you did back where they could read because police reported to me that he seemed foreman in something that he's regarded its gleaming on in the beyond the editor police to work i cannot do anything to put people into jail. was last seen nine months was a trial that's many human rights organizations international where it was criticized always he went to his people when they have their favorites being put before the court they will see that. he's being many pleated then he said they're right they can me any accusation but in that in
5:30 pm
the law according to the laws of the country it is the court be schmeiser but if you could go back in time would you have maybe investigated it ever further or done something different for you because you now have a relationship which is yet to be amended and that was before there would be four hundred b.c. so police report it would lead to me because he is very prominent member of the government beyond that police and judiciary. section not me saw i think i am not to be believed for that. but you were head of state i mean you had your introduce the internal security act. i didn't intend that was a inherit from the british and that was used by all the primary cisco militia before me the first the second the third and also there was amendments made to routes that made it more difficult for public protests for example. at during my time
5:31 pm
there was the interviews the habeas corpus in which several people were released on the beach that there was not sufficient evidence for us to defeat up with the person during my time before that there was no need of this court was this can be checked with. the your predecessor promise and. he called you malaysia's number one. after your alliance with one or brought him and the reports more that you made with him now is that for person on that reemergence of a coalition or friendship or partnership whatever it may be called is this a genuine attempt to rectify mistakes and maybe unify malaysia once again or is it as prime minister najib or former prime minister to play games and act to reinvent yourself and maybe lead you back to power where i know was eight of one of the
5:32 pm
major parties tyndall position and if we are going to overthrow ninety all the parties and in no position must form a coalition going on their own by themselves they will never be able to defeat him so he was headed that we form a coalition and whatever may be may have happened in the past that east not as important as the dam pool with through and because when one is than the east that it will for the country so i'm. and myself and many other this in the bus accused me of all kinds of. wrongdoing. and we decided that the boss he's a box now we have to come together because the overthrowing of nine hundred eighty s. far more important than our previous quarter what was
5:33 pm
a thought or so bad that not your birth as far as you're concerned what are the main threats to malaysia. number one cause he was evolved in a lot of scandals including. accusation of he stealing money from the government not small amount billions of ringgit and also there was evidence brought by american department of justice we can ignore all these to say well this did not happen no one would believe that did happen so we must make sure that if there is any basis what their position then he must grow to a court of law when he was prime minister he had many plead that. at the end he general he was he was sacked through hard work or didn't believe investigator you fired didn't investigate here even by just before you were supposed to be for the task.
